Data Assist not working

I am trying to use data assist wizzard for the first time and under "connection" there is ***none*** with no options for me to choose from. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I have tried creating a new site and everything that I can think of.

What gives...

Before starting the data assist wizard, you need to create a database connection in Dreamweaver.


So our learning resources page:
resources.php

there is a tutorial for creating a database connection here.

Will these instructions work for asp as well as php??

for asp select the option to create a custom connection string and enter:

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=[path to your access mdb file]

subtitute "[path to your access mdb file]" with the windows path the the access mdb file for example:
c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mysite\database\mydatabase.mdb
